A 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of wounding after a man was stabbed in Broxtowe.
Officers were called to Amesbury Circus at about 17:20 on Monday.
Nottinghamshire Police said the victim was taken to Queen's Medical Centre for treatment and his injuries are not believed to be life-altering.
The detained man remains in custody.

Broxtowe’s new MP said he was very surprised at how well the Conservatives had done nationally, and how comfortably he won his own seat.
Darren Henry, who spent 26 years in the RAF, said he plans to hold his first MP surgery tomorrow.
The 51-year-old said when he got home from the count he didn’t treat himself to a glass of fizz, but instead fell asleep while replying to messages – having been awake for 24 hours.
He says he now looks forward to spending time over Christmas with his family – wife Caroline, 19-year-old twins, and Poppy the Cairn terrier.
I thought Corbyn would have had to have a coalition government if it was a hung Parliament, or that there was a chance Boris could have had something similar, but I didn’t expect that resounding a win for the Conservatives across the country, especially winning some seats we didn’t expect to win.
Darren Henry has been elected MP for Broxtowe, meaning that the Conservative Party holds the seat with an increased majority.
The new MP beat Labour's Greg Marshall by 5,331 votes.
The previous MP was Anna Soubry, who left the Conservative Party to form the Independent Group for Change - but she mustered only 4,668 votes and did not come close to challenging her Conservative successor.
Ms Soubry came third and the Green Party's Kat Boettge came fourth.
Voter turnout was up by 0.7 percentage points since the last general election.
More than 55,000 people, roughly three-quarters of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.
Four of the seven candidates, Kat Boettge (Green), Amy Dalla Mura (English Democrats), Teck Khong (independent) and David Bishop (Church of the Militant Elvis Party) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Darren Henry has retained the Broxtowe constituency for the Conservatives.
It was previously held by former Conservative MP Anna Soubry, but she left the party in February 2019 to set up the Independent Group For Change.
Anna Soubry's arrival at the count in Broxtowe earlier was greeted with a flurry of photographs.
The former Conservative MP is standing for the Independent Group for Change in the Nottinghamshire constituency.
But the polls put a Tory victory as the most likely outcome.

Broxtowe was thought to be one of the big battle ground seats for independents in this election.
Former Conservative MP Anna Soubry represented the constituency for nine years, before becoming an independent in February 2019.
But the BBC's exit poll predicts there is a 97% chance the Conservatives will regain the seat.
A Tory campaigner at the Broxtowe count told me he thinks Anna Soubry will lose her deposit, meaning she will get less than 5% of the vote.
Former Conservative and prominent remainer Anna Soubry has criticised both the Liberal Democrats and the Labour Party for tonight's potential Conservative victory.
On Twitter she wrote: "Just to remind everyone. This election was called by the Labour Party and the Liberal Democrats fuelled by tribalism and Kool-Aid when a People's Vote was within our grasp."
She is standing as an independent in Broxtowe, BBC political reporter Hugh Caswall said it was a "top Labour target in Nottinghamshire".
